Chapman Taylor delivering two residential towers at MeadowSide, Manchester

Work has begun on Plots 2 and 3 of the much-anticipated MeadowSide residential scheme in Manchester, for which Chapman Taylor has been appointed as Executive Architect to deliver two apartment towers.

Located at the northern gateway to the city centre, Meadowside will comprise 756 apartments, penthouses and townhouses to cater for a wide range of needs and provide the basis for a diverse and vibrant community. Residents will be close to Manchester’s creative heart and some of its best bars and independent shops.

The project, being delivered by Westfields CZHK on behalf of the developer, Far East Consortium, involves the phased construction of four residential buildings located around Angel Meadow, which will provide residents with a relaxing parkland space in which to escape the bustle of the city.

The two urban apartment towers on Plots 2 and 3 will provide 286 apartments in total. The Gate (Plot 2) and The Stile (Plot 3), will stand 22 and 17 storeys high respectively, with modern glazed façades and solid podium bases. The design seeks to complement and reflect the surrounding Victorian and industrial architecture.

The ground floor area will house a boutique lobby and shared workspace together with independent retail and restaurant units, providing active frontage to the surrounding area. An additional gym and private dining space will be available to residents on the upper podium level of the Stile.

Completing the site, Mount Yard (Plot 5) is presently under construction, with The Peak (Plot 4) planned to commence in the near future.
